Dominican Industries agree with penalizing scofflaw officials
Dominican Republic.- Dominican Republic Industries Association (AIRD) president Campos de Moya on Tuesday said the salaries of officials who don’t submit their financial statement within 30 days after taking office, as the law stipulates, should be withheld.
“Those who don’t submit their sworn statement within the required time, the Dominican State, through the Treasury could suspend payment, and you’ll see that everyone will file their statement,” de Moya said just one day after Accounts Chamber president Licelott Marte warned of penalties against officials who fail to submit their financial statement.

In her warning, Marte noted that the requirement also applies to the justices of the high courts, and members of the electoral board
